I made this for Thanksgiving several years ago and my family enjoyed it a great deal. I didn't alter the recipe in anyway and wouldn't.

This is my "Go To" Cranberry recipe for Thanksgiving and Christmas! I've been using it for a couple years now, good stuff!

This was tasty, but I think it may have ended up too thick. Never having made conserve, I wasn't sure how thick it should be when I took it off the stove. It looked pretty thick to me after only 2-3 minutes, but I figured it probably should be thicker, so I cooked for a few more minutes. When it cooled, it was REALLY thick, to the point I could hold it upside down and it wouldn't fall. I did try this on an English muffin and it was good. I'm going to try it on a turkey sandwich next! Thanks for posting...I will try again and not cook as long.
